The mayor of crazy

Part of me is beginning to wonder if David Miller isn't deliberately sabotaging his ostensibly nationwide anti-handgun campaign:

"After John O'Keefe's tragic killing, I don't think there's any defence for sports shooters any more," Miller said.

"It's a hobby that creates danger to others. Guns are stolen routinely from so-called legal owners. It's time that we got those guns out of Toronto."
...
"It's about a value. Do we as a society value safety, or do we value a hobby that creates danger? And nobody can deny that that hobby directly results in people being shot and killed on the streets of our city. Those are the facts. And they're provable again and again and again."

Directly, mind you. That part where someone decides to steal the gun, and either he or some other person decides to shoot someone with it, is just a footnote. Sport shooters, among them Olympic athletes, are directly culpable in the murder of innocent pedestrians. This is the world David Miller lives in. And it goes some way towards explaining the decision-making that goes on in this city.
